According to state investigators, “the facility failed to assure resident code status in advance directives were communicated throughout the facility.” This failure caused the staff not to know “immediately what action to take or not have if a cardiac emergency occurred.”
The survey team reviewed a resident’s Medical Chart that “did not reveal evidence of a code status or advance directive. Additionally, the code status was not able to be located by the surveyor in the facility’s electronic nursing documentation.”
The investigators interviewed the Director of Nursing and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who “revealed all resident charts were to have a full colored paper in front of the heart medical record identifying the code status of the resident.” The Director reviewed the resident’s chart and “was not able to locate the full colored paper with the code status [stating that] the resident’s admission paperwork what identify the code status.”
The investigative team interviewed the LPN alone who said that “he looked through the pages the medical record for [that resident] stated he could not find the code status and the hard chart.” The LPN stated that he would check with the Director of Nursing to clarify.
The LPN then returned and said that the resident had a “Do Not Intestate Comfort Care (DNRCC)” code status. The investigators asked the LPN what he would do “in a real cardiac emergency?” The LPN responded, “he would not do anything until he found out the code status for the resident [saying] he would check in the computer system for the code status.”
The surveyors say that upon review of the Advance Directives it was revealed: “that the facility staff will document in the medical record advance directives that the resident executes.”
The nursing home “failed to ensure a Legionella prevention plan was in place and had been implemented. This [failure affected 76 residents] who reside in the facility. Also, the facility failed to follow infection control practices while changing a [resident’s device] dressing.”
The investigators interviewed the facility Administrator who “confirmed the facility had not implemented any Legionella program and had no current water testing completed at the facility. The Administrator stated a Legionella plan was not in place when he started at the facility [and that] he had implemented the process of putting one in place and had consulted with a professional water management service.” However, “the plan had not been implemented.”
